Things reached a new level when the star striker was asked which team he's looking forward to facing off against the most. His answer? None other than Manchester United.

Haaland added that he hates to say the word United. The MUFC fanbase is not happy with what Haaland had to say, but who care about that? This is one of the best rivalries in all of football and Haaland has made things even better.
With Haaland now in town, he's seen as the long-term replacement for the great Sergio Aguero, who left the club prior to last season. With MCFC winning the English Premier League title four of the last five years, the team is hoping to add a Champions League triumph as well.
Haaland is viewed as one of the best players in the world right now. In terms of the best young talent, it feels like a toss up between him and Paris Saint-Germain's Kylian Mbappe.
Mbappe was rumored to move to Real Madrid this summer, but things fell through. The same can't be said for Haaland, who is ready to showcase his best stuff for MCFC once the season gets underway. The expectations will be high for him, but fans are ready to see him deliver.
